ok, i found the generator readme and tried to do as it said, i created
an xml file for libwnck:
and then ran gapi-parser libwnck.xml and a lot of numbers n stuff
flashes past as it runs, but then it exits with the following error:
at /usr/local/bin/gapi2xml.pl line 852, <STDIN> line 1621.
I/O warning : failed to load external entity "api/wnck-api.raw.pre"
** (process:12377): WARNING **: File api/wnck-api.raw.pre empty or not
it doesn't matter how i change the location of the api filename or
anything, it always comes out with the same error.
am i doing something wrong or am i barking up the wrong tree completely
trying to do it like this?
